I also think the MIB should be read-write. On a slightly separate note, I 
think it makes sense to keep TE items out of the IGP MIBs (as per 
Kireeti's question).

Please note that there is another mib containing a superset of the 
of draft-ietf-tewg-mib-00.txt (Kireeti's mib).  This other mib is called
draft-ietf-mpls-te-mib-05.txt and it allows management and configuration
